In all of the readings we

In all of the readings we have discussed this semester I have always felt the most satisfaction when my understanding lands me in a place where many things relate cohesively in my mind while others still wander around in a deliciously irreverent kind of way. What I found most interesting about this week’s reading was that although the piece regarding Bali might have pointed to the fact that tacit understanding is based on culture it also pointed to some universal understandings. The need to both identify with and defect from things within a person’s environment is overwhelmingly prevalent in human behavior and the fact that certain groups of people do so in vastly different ways makes it that much more vital to the human experience, in my opinion.
